Who am I

I am a Patient Advocate of Inspire2Live. Since 2005, I live with a lymphoma and show others that cancer does not have to be a death sentence, but can also be the start of a new and richer life, full of opportunities and beautiful people. A Happy and Healthy life in Harmony with cancer. I am employed by the Dutch central bank, which facilitates me to work three days a week for Inspire2Live and its mission. My job enables me to be genuinely independent and to always choose for the patient. Patients First!

Why

I’ve always had good care. Good nurses, good doctors, good treatments and good hospitals. However, I realize that not everyone has this experience and that there are differences between countries. That there is an unfair and unnecessary difference between the rich and the low- and middle-income countries. I want to contribute to the global patients and let them have the same good care that I experienced. I see it as my mission and duty to never ever quit and be there for everyone that needs me. Wherever in the world.

Specialties

My work as a Patient Advocate concentrates around networking, giving talks and writing articles about the fight against cancer. I am working on: changing healthcare for the benefit of global patients, take care of Prevention, Performance (being able to do the things patients want to do and Pain management (take care that patients do not suffer from pain). Personalised medicine has my special attention.
